Thrilled to have gotten my Golden Ticket email yesterday (2/23/18), for a Basic + Filter purchase from 5/21/16, and will be setting the yet-to-be-named 'Forge in my basement office with an Egress Window.
Good news is the 'Forge will be positioned right next to the Egress window, and my plan is to find a second slider window pane that will (temporarily) replace the “normal” one. I plan on having the slider re-glazed with Lexan, with a round cut for a Mag-Vent attachment, with a short (probably 1-2 ft) flexible hose from the 'Forge to the window, and then using a ~ smooth metal dryer vent pipe ( 6 ft) up to the window well top, with a Dryer Vent “screen” for pest avoidance, and a flap door to prevent moisture from entering back to the forge. There will likely need to be one or two elbows (since the office is in the basement) to get the venting to ground level, and ideally out the side of the window well enclosure.
Since Dan & Co. can’t make recommendations on safety, etc., does this arrangement seem OK without a boost fan, or will that likely be required?
My concern is the length given the 1 (or 2) 90 degree elbows that will likely be required.
Just looking for thoughts / input from the group here. Also, would it be better (less restrictive to airflow) to use a Tee Joint rather than a 90 degree elbow, and just cap off the other end, or would that be worse than the Tee joints?
I’ll be happy to share pictures on the final venting arrangement when done.
